1963 Cessna 182F Skylane
 Mar 3, 2011:   New pictures added at bottom of page showing inside of wings and glass.  Instrument panel picture updated.  New exterior shots soon.
March 10, 2011:  New exterior pictures added.

 The 182 E and F models are the first of the "wide body" Skylanes, the first with a rear window looking out toward the tail.  Prior to these models, cabin width was similar to a 172, quite a tight fit in the shoulders for a few big guys up front.

This 1963 Skylane has been with the current owner since 1991, and stored in a nice private hangar. This Skylane has been based inthe dry climate of Colorado nearly her entire life and hangared.  N3207U is an extremely corrosion free plane  - one that has shiny upper wing skins as viewed from the inside.  I would rate this plane as top 2% in the fleet for low corrosion level. You just don't see 60's and 70's vintage Cessnas like this very often any more.

This plane was painted by one of the top shops in the region - one that does quite a few award winning jobs on show planes.  Paint for a Skylane in this shop runs in the $13,000 range.  N3207U had all new glass put in before the paint was done, a very labor intensive process, as Cessna never dreamed these planes would be around long enough to have the glass replaced.

N3207U got a brand new set of 6 factory new ECI cylinders just 150 hours ago, and has had excellent proactive maintenance.  The mags and exhaust system are recently overhauled.  The propeller got new modern blades just 1040 hours ago to replace the AD troubled "screw-in" type blades.

N3207U is a real rare plane in a fleet full of corrosion and damage history, a real "keeper" Skylane.  Please call to make an appointment to view this plane - it is based in the front range of Colorado, north of Denver.

Paint & Interior

All windows were replaced with new just before the paint was completely stripped and redone in Imron in 2003.  Paint was done at a Colorado shop which paints many show planes and has won many awards (the last Skylane invoice I saw from this shop was $13,200).  There are a few chips and scuffs - but this plane shows like it just came out of the paint shop.  All hardware was replaced with new stainless steel hardware after paint.

Interior is original with recent carpet.  There are some cracks in plastic. The headliner is in good condition. High wear areas are showing their age.  The interior shows about as well as you could expect a well cared for 1963 interior in a 3800 hour airframe to show.  Panel and gauges show very well.
